NATIONAL PARK SERVICE (NPS) SOUTHEAST REGION Fort Raleigh National Historic Site (FORA) Fiber optic cabling and raceway installation STATEMENT OF WORK (SOW) General This project is for the installation of underground fiber optic infrastructure between buildings to create a campus environment. This project will connect the Outer Banks Group Headquarters building (HQ) network room to network cabinets inside both the Fort Raleigh Maintenance Shop (FORA Shop) and the Museum Resources Center (MRC). The project includes all labor, supplies, materials, and testing necessary to create a fully functional fiber optic network between these three buildings. It is the responsibility of the contractor to provide fully functioning end to end network infrastructure (fiber optic patch panel to fiber optic patch panel) for each building within the campus. Acceptance of the completed work will be based on acceptable Bi-Directional OTDR testing that fall within specified limits. This scope of work describes the minimum level of performance required by the government. All equipment must be new and unused. *Connecting non-government devices to the government data network is strictly prohibited. All technicians performing work must be certified to install and terminate fiber. All work shall be done in accordance with the attached National Park Service Cabling Standards for all data network cabling specifications and installation requirements. Locations: Headquarters Building, 1401 National Park Drive, Manteo, NC 27954 Fort Raleigh Maintenance Building, 1421 Pear Pad Road, Manteo, NC 27954 Museum Resource Building, 1419 Pear Pad Road, Manteo, NC 27954 1.

HDPE is required to enter the vaults and will be trimmed 6” above gravel base, and pipe must be sealed after fiber cable has been placed. 1.1.3 Provide and install cabling a. The contactor shall provide and install approximately 4200’ of 24 strand, single mode loose tube fiber optic cable following routes on FORA Area Map 1. b. Must meet or exceed NPS-Cable-Standard-v-1.0 (appendix A) c. 100% of all fiber must be installed in newly HDPE roll pipe and conduit up to each network cabinet d. Must be terminated using Active Core Alignment Fusion splicing. e. Must use pre-terminated Fiber Optic pigtails with SC/UPC connectors. f. Service loops must be created at each of the four vaults by leaving 100’ coil g. Service loops must be created at each network cabinet by leaving 40’ coil h. Cables will terminate by the contractor at contractor supplied 1U, 24 count rack mount Optical Patch Panel (OPP) in each building as planned in cable path. i. All strands of fiber must be terminated at each termination box j. Fiber shall be pulled into maintenance garage through newly placed pipe that follows existing power conduit, and into MRC building DMARC room and false ceiling as sketches show. Service loops shall be coiled up in attic area. 1.1.4 Riser Conduit installation a. All risers into and out of buildings will use 1.25” schedule 40 conduit and sweeping 90 degree when turns are necessary, to adhere to fiber optic cable bend radius specs. LB, and pull junction boxes are acceptable. All conduit installation should meet electrical NC State codes, Dare County codes, and NPS Cable-Standard-v-1.0 (Appendix A) b. Fiber shall be pulled to the HQ mechanical room through 75’ of existing conduit from the vault on back corner of the building. Contractor shall furnish and install conduit from the mechanical room 60’ to network room via attic area, then sweep down to existing network room to existing network rack. c.
